5 Joey Barton Quotes That Look Very Bad After Termination Of Rangers Contract

It's official, Joey Barton's time as a Rangers player is over.

Just hours after news broke that the former Man City and Marseille midfielder had been signed off from training due to "stress", we received official confirmation that Barton's contract had been terminated.

So that's the end of that.

A very brief, but turbulent time in Scottish football, Joey's Glasgow experience will best be remembered for some quotes that were made hastily, and of course this challenge that saw him fly into the air away to Kilmarnock:


But back to the quotes, the following were said in recent times and Celtic fans will enjoy a wee chuckle to themselves looking back now.

After the training ground bust-up that saw him suspended...

I want Rangers to win. That is all I care about and my overriding intention is to give my all, everyday, in order to help Rangers do that.

On Scott Brown...

People keep talking about Joey Barton and Scott Brown.

He ain't in my league. He is nowhere the level I am as a player. He can't get to me.

If I play well, Scott Brown doesn't stand a chance. That is not me being blasé. That is me just stating what I believe.

On there being no issue with him and the club...

We sat down in the dressing room afterwards and spoke through what was said. It’s disappointing that certain people are trying to insinuate that there is (an issue), because it’s completely false.

On Scottish football not being able to live with him...

I am comfortable with expectation, I'm comfortable with pressure, I'm comfortable with my mindset and focus I have in terms of turning in my own performances.

If I get to that level, unfortunately for anybody up there, they ain't going to live with me.

On valuing his relationship with Mark Warburton...

Apologising doesn't always mean that you're wrong and the other person is right. It means you value you the relationship more than your ego.

Thanks for the memories Joseph, it was quite an entertaining ride.

In all seriousness, it will be interesting to see what is next for Barton, as he was Burnley's player of the year last season so he clearly has something to offer the right club.


It was never going to work out at Rangers, was it?
